My favorite fall clothing accessories are scarves in every pattern and color. So, instead of breaking the bank on another scarf that will inevitably get snagged by my rings, cats, purse zipper (the list goes on), I’ve decided this knit-less scarf project is the perfect autumn craft for me. And guess what? It’s insanely simple and requires zero knitting knowledge. The only tools you’ll need to whip up this scarf are scissors, a cutting blade, a needle and thread. Talk about easy as pumpkin pie.
When you pull out your cold-weather clothes from last year, remember that this scarf project is perfect for turning outdated, torn, stained, stretched and despised sweaters into something fabulous. That sweater that hit the 12-year mark two years ago, you know, the one your significant other teases you for holding on to…it may be the perfect accent hue in your “brand new” recycled scarf. If you plan on scouring thrift stores for the perfect color combinations, then look for sweaters that are 100% acrylic or acrylic blend instead of cotton. Cotton is more likely to unravel.
